About The Palisades house

A vision created through shared experience

“Some things cannot be taught; they must be experienced. You never learn the most valuable lessons in life until you go through your own journey.”― Roy T. Bennet

The Palisades House recovery model is the next step in the continued evolution of the treatment industry. Whether completing residential treatment, attending an outpatient program, or simply rebooting your perspective on life, The Palisades House transformative living program is where you apply and practice new life skills and learn how to live a life of purpose and meaning. Our recovery community is a critical step in one’s journey and our collaboration with referring clinicians, families, and loved ones, ensures each journey is given the greatest support possible from the very beginning. More than a sober living, The Palisades House guides clients through a process of rediscovery and how to live an engaged and active life of recovery. From the supportive and serene environment to the trained and compassionate staff, our mission is to show clients how to live a life of passion, purpose, and meaning on their road to recovery. 

The Palisades House promotes a sense of identity, community, and personal integrity to enable meaningful and connected recovery experiences. Through volunteer opportunities and engagement in occupational and academic pursuits, our residents are encouraged to take an active role in both their lives and the lives of their community members. We regularly consult with a client’s family and clinical team when appropriate, integrating several perspectives into a multidimensional understanding of each individual. Residents are encouraged to embark along their own unique process of discovery and guided change. We understand that the journey to recovery is not always a straight line, which is why our mission is simple: to create a comfortable space to reboot, refresh, and recover.

With years of experience in the recovery field, both founders of The Palisades House felt strongly that a sense of connection and purposeful living are critical to long-lasting recovery. Drawing from their collective experiences, both professional and personal, they realized the power of community is the foundation from which personal growth and change take place. The Palisades House is a premier recovery residence that is as exceptional in its client care as it is in its aesthetic. Our homes are a mindfully crafted and pristine space of healing, complemented by support for the physical, spiritual, and emotional development of each of its residents.


“Christian played an essential role in our son’s recovery. Our son struggled with a serious drug and alcohol-dependency issue for several years. Christian provided our son with a solid role model, and compassionate, unwavering support when he needed it most. He not only guided our son through the process during his residency in sober living, but us as well, providing us with solid support and an accountability system that gave my son the tools he needed to remain sober long after his stay. We are eternally grateful for Christian’s help and support.”
